Wycombe Warband is the wargaming club serving the High Wycombe and Beaconsfield area in south Buckinghamshire. We play all sorts of historical wargames, from ancient to modern periods, in different scales and using a wide variety of rules sets.

For up to date information about what's planned for this week, topics we're currently discussing, and general banter take a look at our email list and message board at Wycombe Warband on Yahoo! Groups, and join us if you would like.
We also have an increasingly active group on Facebook so you can also catch up us there if you wish.
To find out what club members are up to, see The Front Line for links to all our recent blog pages.
We try our best to make sure that a range of different games is always available so that people can play something they enjoy. If you have a game and want to play it then there is sure to be someone willing to give it a go or more likely already a fan. We're currently playing a lot of Saga, Flames of War and X-Wing, but we like to play a lot of games and will have a go at almost anything.
Above all, we set out to make our games enjoyable for everyone to play, and encourage people to take part. Whether you're a new recruit or a seasoned veteran, whether you're young or old, you'll always be welcome to join in, so come along. Have fun pushing some figures around and rolling some dice!
We meet every week on a Thursday night from 7.00pm onwards, and occasional Saturdays from 11.00am onwards. Making a day of it allows us to host big battle games, play several different games, or run shorter games several times throughout the day. In addition, we also have occasional wargames evenings and other fixtures. See our calendar of events for up to date details of what's planned over the weeks ahead.
We meet at the National Film & Television School, Station Road, Beaconsfield, HP9 1LG. Tel. 01494 671234. PLEASE NOTE CHANGED ACCESS ARRANGEMENTS DURING CONSTRUCTION WORKS ABOVE! If you can't find where we are in the building tell the security guard you're a wargamer and they'll give you directions.
The school is easy to find, has plenty of space for games, free car parking and a subsidised bar that is open most evenings.
You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or HQ@wycombewarband.org if you want to get more information. You're very welcome to just turn up one night but if you've not been before and intend to use the car park please let us know in advance so that we can make sure a space is available.
